Does money make you mean?

PRESENTED ON JAN 30, 2018
IN MAASTRICHT @ VOL 34

What do you think, does money make you mean? Paul Smeets, Associate Professor in Finance at Maastricht University School of Business and Economics, investigated the influence of money on prosocial behaviour over the last few years. 

Traditionally finance researchers have only focused on how to behave
to earn more money. Paul flipped this question around and asked: Does having more money influence your behaviour?

Faces That Make Money

BY ROYI AKAVIA
@ VOL 27 ON DEC 18, 2015

The distinctive pieces introduced here combine a collage made of real devalued international currency and layers of varnish over which Royi Akavia paints the portraits of modern subjects who have money, make money and spend money. The works are also burned with fire to create a glasslike 3-D surface reminiscent of old world craftsmanship. The end result: The rich and famous – such as Queen Elizabeth – are situated atop such personalities as Bolivar, Leonardo, Lenin and Margaret Thatcher.

A Hundred Words about a Trillion

BY EMILY INGLIS
@ VOL 33 ON APR 22, 2016

Emily Inglis - gardener and artist

If you are not an astrophysicist or a global economist a trillion is an abstract number, too big to grasp. How big is it? What does it buy? In my talk I will be comparing and contrasting what a trillion is worth. Looking at monetary value globally. How serious is national debt? How much would it cost to buy Wales? If you had enough money could you buy a unicorn? Or a house in Mayfair? These questions will be probed.
